A 40-year-old woman, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in January and has been getting chemotherapy at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Sugar Land, Texas, got a sweet surprise from her husband.
44-year-old Albert Conner was not allowed to be by his wife Kelly Conner’s side during her chemotherapy due to coronavirus crisis.
Albert decided to be by his wife’s side by making a giant sign and standing outside her window holding the sign.
The sign read: ‘I can’t be with you but I’m here. I love you. Thank you to all staff.’
Albert told Good Morning America that he promised his wife to be there for her and would accompany her to every appointment but he couldn’t do it.
He said he was upset but totally understands that the hospital is just trying to protect their patients and staff.
He said: “When you just reflect on everything and think about all the nurses and doctors and other patients, it makes perfect sense. You really can’t argue it. You just have to support it any way you can.”
Kelly was left surprised when Albert stood outside her window holding the sweet sign as she had just drove herself to the hospital while Albert was at home.
After a few hours, he texted her that he is outside and Kelly was left speechless when she spotted the heart-melting sign.
Kelly said: “It immediately brought tears to my eyes and I felt a love for him right then in that moment, that he would do that for me.”
She shared the picture of Albert holding the sign outside her window on Facebook and the picture touched everyone’s heart.
Kelly told some nurses even went outside to say thank you to her husband.
Kelly’s chemo will end in May and then, she will have surgery and radiation.
